Official Guide to Star Trek: The Animated Series to be Released Later This Year

Fans of Star Trek: The Animated Series have a new offering from Simon & Schuster and CBS Consumer Products to look forward to, as Star Trek: The Official Guide to the Animated Series is set to be released later this year.

Written by Aaron Harvey and Rich Schepis, the book will delve into each of the 22 episodes throughout its 160 pages and is the first of its kind to explore the second iteration of Star Trek on television at this level.

Star Trek: The Official Guide to the Animated Series will be released on September 3 and is now available to pre-order on Amazon.

Official description:

When the beloved and now iconic original Star Trek show was cancelled in 1969, and went into syndication, nobody was expecting how much fan support was out there for the Enterprise and its crew. As it became clear to CBS that there was a great appetite for further adventures, they debuted a Saturday morning cartoon that continued that epic five-year mission, with a number of episodes penned by science fiction notables.

The Star Trek Animated Show was produced by Gene Roddenberry and featured the voices of virtually every named star, including William Shatner Leonard Nimoy, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, and the rest of the crew in 22 animated episodes that are considered canon by Trekkies the world around.

This book is the first to document the animated series, each episode lovingly and authoritatively described by authors who had astonishing access to behind-the-scenes tales, original scripts, and the talent who made it all happen.
